OCAT上海馆荣幸呈现展览“海陆空-重访录像艺术的空间性”。17位国际当代艺术家将带来最具趣味性和挑战性的录像作品,在亚太地区三国间进行巡展。展览由中国、澳大利亚及韩国多家知名美术馆画廊的共同合作,并将于2014年4月20日在OCAT上海馆开幕。
 “海陆空”是地平线所代表的三要素。地平线最简单的再现形式可以是平面或纸页上的一条线。在本次展览上,一些世界顶尖的当代艺术家以地平线为起点,探索艺术和我们对世界的感知中一些共同的最为基本的复杂议题。
本次展览是屡获殊荣的澳大利亚艺术组织亚太多媒体艺术节(MAAP)最新的巡展项目。MAAP的上一次巡展“光源自光”被澳大利亚亚洲艺术大奖评选为最佳视觉艺术项目。
展览主题“海陆空-重访录像的空间性”体现了MAAP进行跨文化交流独的独特途径。来自澳洲、亚洲及欧洲的艺术家围绕共同的主题展开讨论。为展览专门创作的新作品将与影响深远的荷兰观念艺术家简·迪贝兹(Jan Dibbets)创作于上世纪70年代早期的录像作品发生对话。迪贝兹是最早将摄影机作为工具用于当代艺术的先锋艺术家之一。“海陆空”将展出他的作品包括《地平线I》(1971)、《地平线II》(1971)以及《地平线III》(1971)。这一系列作品通过对摄影框的操控,挑战我们在扁平化的抽象屏幕空间里对地平线的感知方式。
展览在不同的国家巡展时都以新方式呈现。在OCAT上海馆,“海陆空”将吸引更多中国艺术家来构思与上海嘈杂的都市环境既相称又相悖的创作。事实上,上海跟世界上的其他城市一样拥有土地、海洋(河流)和天空:在这里,需要更努力去想象才能看到比高楼大厦和变形的地平线更远的地方。通过艺术家的智慧,我们看到了屏幕媒介和录像空间中提出和探索的不同空间问题。展览向观念录像艺术实践的肇始致敬,也是在提醒我们一段可以被回忆并重新定义的重要历史,借此重新整理我们在当代都市社会中的讨论。
参加本次展览的艺术家有:白浦(澳大利亚),劳伦·布伦凯特(澳大利亚),简·迪贝兹(荷兰),芭芭拉·坎贝尔(澳大利亚),王功新(中国),希尔帕·库普塔(印度),朱加(中国),郑然斗(韩国),德拉克·克雷克勒(澳大利亚),乔凡尼·欧佐拉(意大利),祖坚·包华(葡萄牙/香港),王蓬(中国),金守子(韩国),克雷格·沃尔什(澳大利亚),沈铁雄(韩国),黑默·佐伯尼格(澳大利亚),杨振中(中国)
展览由华侨城当代艺术中心上海馆(OCAT上海)、格里菲斯大学美术馆、布里斯班MAAP空间共同主办。其它参与展览的美术馆和画廊还包括:首尔Artsonje 中心、IHN画廊、Lee Hwaik 画廊、One and J画廊、Opsis Art、 Gallery Skape。
本次巡展获得了包括格里菲斯大学及美术馆、昆士兰技术大学及孔子学院在内的亚洲及澳洲多个艺术组织和机构的协助。

OCAT Shanghai and MAAP is proud to present LANDSEASKY, a group show bringing some of the most interesting and challenging video artworks from 17 international contemporary artists to 3 countries in a major Australia-Asia tour. The exhibition opens across multiple prestigious museums and galleries in China Australia and Korea, and will open in OCAT-Contemporary Art Terminal Shanghai on 20 April 2014.
LANDSEASKY speaks to the three elements represented by the horizon line. In its simplest form, the horizon can be represented as a single line across a plane or page. In this exhibition, some of the world’s sharpest contemporary artists use the horizon line as a starting point to explore some of the most fundamental and complex themes in both art and our perception of the world.
This is the latest touring project by award-winning Australian arts organization MAAP – Media Art Asia Pacific (MAAP).  Their last touring exhibition ‘Light from Light’ was selected as the best Visual Art project in the Australian Arts in Asia Award last year.
LANDSEASKY carries the hallmarks of MAAP’s unique approach to cross-cultural exchange. Artists from Australia, Asia and Europe are brought together in a conversation around a shared theme.  New artworks created for the exhibition will be in dialogue with some early 1970s video artworks by influential Dutch conceptual artist Jan Dibbets. Dibbets is one of the early pioneers to apply the camera as a tool in contemporary art. Exhibited in LANDSEASKY are his videos Horizon I (1971),Horizon II (1971), and Horizon III (1971), which manipulate the camera frame to challenge the way we perceive the horizon line while flattening an abstracted screen space.
The exhibition is presented in new configurations in each country of the tour. In OCAT Shanghai, LANDSEASKY will attract additional Chinese artists and its layout is conceived to match and at the same time contrast with Shanghai buzzing urban environment. In fact Shanghai has land, sea (and rivers) and sky just like any other city in the world: here it takes a bigger effort of imagination to see beyond the high-rises and the altered horizon line. Through artists’ intellectual approach we see different spatial problems articulated and explored in screen media and video space. This exhibition nods to the beginning of conceptual video art practice reminding us of a rich critical past that can be recalled and reframed to refresh our conversation in our contemporary urban society.
Other participating venues as part of the tour include OCT-OCAT Contemporary Art Terminal, Shanghai, Griffith University Art Gallery in Brisbane and the National Art School Gallery in Sydney. The exhibition is partnered with a number of Asian and Australian organisations including the Queensland University of Technology and the QUT Confucius Institute.
The exhibition is partnered with a number of Asian and Australian organisations including the Australia Council for the Arts, the Australia Korea Foundation – Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, Griffith University through Griffith University Art Gallery, the Queensland University of Technology and the QUT Confucius Institute.
